ABOUT THE ARTIST
Hi there! I'm a nature photographer currently based in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. I've been photographing for eight years now. Though I enjoy living in the Northwest, my artistic passion lies in the deserts of the American Southwest. My continuing fascination with this region stems from its geologic diversity, its raw display of the processes of time, and the seemingly endless mystery around every corner - one could spend a lifetime exploring and only uncover a fraction of its secrets. I have an appreciation for dramatic imagery as well as smaller, quieter scenes. I often seek to blend those attributes in my art, though my primary goal is simply to create images that mean something to me.
In 2016, I won three major awards, all international competitions with thousands of entries from dozens of countries:
- International Landscape Photographer of the Year - "Hibernation", "Ballad of Gales", "Sanctuary", and "Mother Brain" earned top prize
- USA Landscape Photographer of the Year - "Volcanic Autumn" placed 1st overall
- International Pano Awards Photographer of the Year - "Hibernation II" and "Funnel Factory" placed 1st and 2nd overall
My images have appeared in a number of publications, including USA Today, Landscape Photography Magazine, Photography Masterclass Magazine, DPReview, Scholastic, N-Photo Magazine, LeNs Magazine, Digital Photo Magazine, Digital Camera World, Digital Photographer Magazine, Practical Photography Magazine, Photographer's Companion Magazine, Amateur Photographer UK, and the IES Lighting Handbook.
